It’s another big week as we have the go home show for Revolution, but at the same time we also have an Iron Man match between Kenny Omega and Pac. This show has been on a roll lately with one good week after another so hopefully they can keep it going on the way to the pay per view. Let’s get to it.

We’re coming up on Revolution and that means there are a few things we need do first. That would include a tag team battle royal to crown some new #1 contenders, plus Cody vs. Wardlow in a cage so Cody can face Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Hopefully we get some other good stuff as well and the last few weeks would suggest we will. Let’s get to it.

We’re less than three weeks away from Revolution and the card is either set or pretty clear from this point. There is still some work to do, but at the same time there are major matches to get through on television. That would include tonight, as Riho defends the Women’s Title against Nyla Rose and SCU challenges Kenny Omega/Hangman Page for the Tag Team Titles. Let’s get to it.

Live from Huntsville, AL

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Excalibur & Jim Ross.  Still hoping to read Jim’s new book this weekend since his publisher was nice enough to send it my way.

My PVR better not screw this up two weeks in a row.

We’re less than a month away from Revolution and you can see a lot of the card from here. The big story continues to be Jon Moxley challenging Chris Jericho for the World Title and that means he has to go through the Inner Circle. He’ll start with that tonight against Ortiz, but other than that we have Cody dealing with MJF. Let’s get to it.

We’re back on dry land after last week’s show on a boat. We are also a month away from the Revolution pay per view and that means it’s time to hammer home some of the card. A few matches have already been set, with the World Title match between champion Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley being set up last week. Let’s get to it.

The SmarK Rant for AEW Dynamite – 1.22.20

Taped from INTERNATIONAL MONKEY KNIFE-FIGHTING WATERS ON A MOTHER F’N BOAT!  My favorite story about this show so far was that Tony Khan arranged for the master tape to be duplicated and flown out on two separate planes to Atlanta, because even if Iran shot down one of them, there would still be a show on TNT!

And now, we’re on a boat. If there is one thing that AEW has managed to do well it is offering in some changes of venue. That is the case again here as they are presenting this week’s show from Chris Jericho’s Rock N Rager cruise, with the matches taking place on the deck of the boat. That’s cool enough as it is, but there are some big matches as well. Let’s get to it.

It’s the first half of Bash At The Beach, with the second half coming next week from a boat (yes a boat). The big story this week is the fallout from last week with Jon Moxley turning down Chris Jericho’s offer of a spot in the Inner Circle with a champagne bottle. That all but guarantees a title match at Revolution so it’s time to built things up. Let’s get to it.

We’re in the south again this week and it’s time for Jon Moxley to make his decision about joining the Inner Circle. That could go multiple ways but I think you know where this is headed. Other than that, we’ll be getting a tribute to Memphis wrestling legends, which seems prime for a certain loudmouthed rich kid to come in and mess everything up. Let’s get to it.

It’s the Homecoming edition as we start the new year in the home stomping grounds of Jacksonville. That means we should be in for a big show to start the new year, which is taking place a year to the day of the announcement of the company. I’m curious to see what they have in store as it should be interesting. Let’s get to it.

The SmarK Rant for AEW Dynamite – 01.01.20 

Hey, I spent New Year’s Day finally playing Far Cry 4 on the PS4 for the first time, which is a fun game so far but I can’t aim for shit on a console.  That’s probably why I prefer the Rockstar auto-aim system.  Anyway, I paid $10 for it, and it’s worth it so far.

To keep things fair, I’ll do NXT on Friday night when it goes live on the Network, to see if doing a current rant provides better results.  To be honest, the revenue on the blog goes in the toilet every January when ad rates reset for the year, so now’s the time to experiment.
